Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester earlier this week after missing the pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.
There has been a lot of speculation over his future, with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes doing his utmost to engineer a move for his main client.
However, Ronaldo hit out at the mainstream media this week for reports circulating over his future — ignoring that he arguably contributed to the media storm by arriving to training on Tuesday morning with Mendes sat in the passenger seat…
Ronaldo also confirmed on social media that he would return for the last pre-season friendly of the summer against Rayo Vallecano.
He followed up on his promise, too, as United shared a video of the 37-year-old arriving at Old Trafford ahead of the game via Twitter.
